Times flies.....

Goodness I don't even know where to start.  Seems like quite awhile since I have posted. 

I have been super sick.  Some days I feel ok, and I rush around trying to get stuff done before the nausea hits again.  Then other days I feel so bad that I lay on the couch for most of the day just feeling crappy.  I am almost out of the 1st trimester and hoping this morning sickness in on the tail end.  My other pregnancies I am usually over the MS by the 2nd tri comes along.  Crossing my fingers!!!

This past Saturday was so busy.  My friend who died in Jan, his wife was moving this weekend.  She still has his wrecked motorcycle.  She can't get rid of it because of insurance and lawyers.  So, she needed help moving it.  Many of our friends said they couldn't handle seeing it.  I figured his wife and kids have looked at that bike for the last 6 months.  Everyone else can suck it up and deal.  I wasn't sqeamish about it.  I dismantled a bike a couple years ago that a guy in town commited suicide on. 

Anyways, I hate waiting around for people to decide what to do.  I am a supervisor at work.  I am use to barking orders.  LOL  So, I had arranged for a tow truck to come pick the bike up.  I figured I would over see getting it to the new house.  Got there and had a few guys who were fine with handling it.  So, they ended up putting it onto our trailer.  We spend the next few hours getting her moved and garbage picked up.  I had worked the night before, and had to work that night also.  I was super tired.  I slept here and there.  Whenever I could.  :)  But, I came home to a wonderful suprise.  My IFs had sent me chocolate covered strawberries.  YUMMY!!!  I took a picture but will have to post it later.  :)

Got home from work on Sunday morning.  Went potty and was spotting.  I freaked!!!  I tried to go lay down.  I figured it might just be one of those things and if I layed down it would go away.  Well, I layed there and couldn't sleep.  I was stressing.  I am not religious by any means, but I started praying.  This is the way my MC started in Dec.  6 months to the day.  On a Sunday also.  Of course, I didn't start thinking about this stuff until later.  So, I got up and told DH that I was headed to the hospital.  He was worried too.  Got there, put in the room next to the one I was in last time.  :(  Started thinking about dates and times, and was really freaking myself out.   The nurse came in and said they needed to take blood to run my #s.   He comes in with 4 vials.  I think my eyes bugged out.  I gave him a hard time.  LOL  He took my right arm, I told him the veins were deep in that arm.  So, he looks at my hand.  Ya!  OUCH!  He shoved a stick in my hand to get blood.  LOL  I now have a huge lump and my skin is turing all shades of nasty.   Looks like I had a IV the size of a straw. 

My poor IF, W, was home alone and having his own stress party.  My BFF showed up shortly after my blood removal party.  She was trying to calm both of us down.  The US tech came in and did the ultra sound.  Its the same tech I had in Dec.  Too much coincidence.  So, he went to the baby first thing.  And, there it sat, wiggling around, with its little heart pumping away.  He went there to give me peace of mind.  He did all the measurements, and baby was measuing 10wks 1 day.  Right on track.  Dr came back and said my hcg #s were 155k. 

Today no spotting.  Yay!!  Just seems like one of those things.  I have a call into my OB today.  I want a progesterone blood draw done.  The nurse said they were doing one yesterday but, ended up not doing it. 

I ended up ordering a home doppler this morning.  A little peace of mind for the next couple of months until I can feel this little tadpole moving around.

miracles and massages

Sorry to leave you hanging.  This stupid morning sickness makes me not want to do much of anything.

We had our appt on Wed afternoon.  Was feeling pretty good until we got to the Drs office.  Then started getting super nervous.  My IF was the opposite.  He was nervous early on, and then excited.  LOL  We got into the office.  I made my IF and my daughter (to keep him company) go behind the curtain so I could disrobe.  Because of course, since I had a entourage with me, the Drs office wanted to do my pap smear.  So, they only got the audio and not the visual.  LOL
Once the CNM was situated and had the "wand" in, we called W and Alex out.    W was amazed.  My CNM was so great!!  She was as excited as we all were.  She took her time to show W everything, and explain so much to him.  It was wonderful.  W took lots of pictures and lots of video.    After a big hug, I kicked him out so I could put clothes back on.  :)  He needed to go call C anyways.  He sent C the video and pictures.  I talked to C when we got out of the office.  He was also super excited and a bit speechless.  LOL  Its just amazing to think here we are.  You go into this knowing what you want to happen.  But, when it happens, its kind of a shock.  Like, OMG, this Really happened!!  LOL

W was flying out that night, so we spent the rest of the day trolling the mall, and then having dinner with my husband and BFF.  Was a good day.  I of course, came home and passed out by 845.  LOL

Had a massage yesterday.  OMG, I was drooling!!  I have decided to make a pedicure and a massage part of my monthly regime. 

Don't know when I will update again.  After the MS has left the building, I will be back to my normal posting.    Either that or I will add my IF , W, and have him start posting.  :)

Love to all!!

Tomorrow is my first US appt.  My IF, W, will be here.  I am nervous.  You just never know what will happen. 
My MS is in full swing.  I feel crappy all day long.  I try to sleep but its hard.  I have been on zofran the last 4 pregnancies.  I got a new prescription in Dec.  But, it doesn't seem to last.  I got a new prescription yesterday, thinking maybe the other had lost its umph.  But, it doesn't seem to be working.  Maybe I have grown accostomed to it.  I tried the unisom/b6 combo last night.  Woke up a bit groggy but so far feeling ok. 

Will update after tomorrows appt.

Yes, I am still here.  Just got back from our trip yesterday.  Spent last Tuesday in Disneyland.  Then Wed-Sun in Mexico.  Had a great time.  Stopped in LA for a couple of days.  Sunday night we got together with my ED IPs.  Met the twins face to face.  They are 7.  I haven't seen my IM in person since the retrieval, which was 8 years ago.  It was great.  The kids were so sweet.  When it was time to go, there were tears and hugs. 

Monday night we met up with my 2nd TS IPs.  And, of course, Mr. Christopher.  He is so cute.  And, a firecracker.  LOL  Spent  a few hours with them and had dinner.  Was great!!!  Love seeing them.

Got home yesterday and passed out.  I am done.  I go back to work tonight, which I am not looking forward to.  They wanted me to go in last night.  I said NO WAY.  LOL

On the pregnancy front, I am feeling like crap.  Morning sickness is in full swing.   This is the worst part of pregnancy.  Once I get past this point, things are great.  So, I am really looking forward to wk 12-13.  We are 7 wks 3 days today.
